Just one more update to share with you tonight, this one from proudestmunkie.


Pepper Market









She said, "At breakfast this morning I ordered Creme brûlée French toast and Bill got a ham and cheese omelet. Mine was ok, definitely not my favorite breakfast on property. Tonga toast puts it to shame. The French toast is VERY dense, it's almost like bread pudding. Not for someone with a consistency issue.

The omelet was tasty--it was solid (lots of ham and cheese) and well made. Bill started eating it before I got back to the table so my apologies for the half eaten omelet shop."







"French toast side shot. (FYI it comes with the strawberry preserves on it, I asked for it on the side)"







"Bill's slaughtered omelet."

Hi Barb & everyone! I am frantically trying to get ready for our trip. Last week it was not certain we would be able to go, but now it is all systems GO!

So we will be at BCV from 3/20-3/27. Our Cast of Characters is me, Valerie, my DH, Jim, our 3 kids & my MIL, Jill.

As for our dining plans, well a bunch or character meals: Crystal Palace, Garden Grill, Tusker House, and Hollywood & Vine. A few dinners: Artist Point, Biergarten and Ohana. Although I have been known to re-plan on the fly, so we'll see how many of these we actually get to. Might have a few others too or instead! We shall see!

Here is a pic from last year, kids are a little bigger now, but the adults all look pretty much the same. If you see us around the World, say hi!

Barb, I am so glad that you are going back to the World! I cannot wait to see where you dine. Hope you and the family have a fantastic time.

Also, wanted to update you on my next trip. June is out for now. We are thinking July and hopefully will finalize in a week or two.

From "That's So Sweet" in Lexington, IL....




Mini-Cheesecakes
Flavors: White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate-Strawberry, Peach Amaretto, Key Lime, Salted Caramel, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, & Turtle






Well, my jaw just dropped! As I was scrolling down, I thought 'Boy those look like That's So Sweet's!' The maple bacon are my favorites.

Off to sing It's a Small World.

I look forward to receiving your updates Valerie and hopefully we will run into each other during the days that our trips overlap. Thanks for posting a pic, I'll be on the lookout for you and your family.

Hi diskam! You must live nearby. I've heard that the maple bacon cheesecake is great but haven't tried it yet. Have you checked out the cupcakes at Sugar Mama's?

The bad news is that we received no "live from Disney World" updates today. But the good news is that Angebee sent us the rest of her updates from her trip at the end of February. I'll go ahead and post some of these now and save the rest for tomorrow, just in case we don't receive anything from Disney World again.


Angebee said, "After a long day at Epcot, we grabbed a late dinner at our resort's...

Landscapes of Flavor






"Ham & cheese sub, apple slices & Odwalla fruit juice; Turkey sub, brownie bites & Dasani water; Individual pepperoni pizza w/ caesar salad, Mickey cupcake & Nesquick chocolate milk"


"The pizza meal was from the Make Your Own Pasta service counter and just tasted "okay". Kit loved Mickey's ears being oreos on the cupcake. The subs were taken from a wall of coolers near the registers and counted as an entree on the QS meal plan. They were actually pretty good. The brownie bites were rich and delicious!"





"Then on Feb 27th we went to Animal Kingdom! It was everyone's first visit and my first time as well on the safari. We found a food cart selling fresh fruit just off the ride."






"This watermelon was so fresh, ripe and GOOD that we almost forgot to get a picture."





Lunch was at...

Restorauntosaurus





"Chicken Salad, Chocolate Mousse in a Glass, Barq's Root Beer"


"Mom thought the chicken salad was MUCH better than at Electric Umbrella at Epcot. The menu online says 'Chicken BLT' but it was just a regular Caesar w/ chicken when we were there. Still yummy and she got a few tomatoes off the topping bar. There were a couple of different flavored lemonades on the menu (I can't remember them) but they weren't part of the meal plan."







"Chicken Nuggets served with Fries, Chocolate Mousse in a Glass, Coke"



"Dad thought these were good enough. You actually get the drinks yourself from a soda fountain by the topping bar."






"Chili Cheese Dog, Cheesecake in a Glass, Barq's Root Beer"


"Kit got hers without the chili and ate the 'mac & cheese' on top first then the hot dog like a regular one. It was good and different but not her favorite. The cheesecake didn't sit well with her, either."







"1/3 lb. Angus Bacon Cheeseburger with Fries, Chocolate Mousse in a Glass, Coke"


"My no-cheese-no-bacon burger still came with a surprise piece of bacon. Not that I complained. I just loaded it up with topping bar goodies."







Burger with toppings

"Tomatoes, onions and pickles for my burger. One of those tomatoes went to mom's salad. Everything was delicious but the pickles were a little sour."





Landscapes of Flavor


"We had dinner at the resort again. By then I learned my dad thought we only got one meal per day on the plan so we had to compensate for too many meals left by getting 4 individual pizzas and one Build Your Own Salad from the salad bar. I forgot pictures but they looked like generic pizza and salad from Disney. I did remember to take pictures of two of our desserts."













"The frosting was rich and the fondant candy sweet. The grapes were a little better this time but most were still squished or sour."

Aw Thanks Brenda! I am pretty blown away by Barb's kindness and encouragement. I was pretty uncertain when I started my review and by the end I was becoming much more confident and verbose! She's a great asset to this place and I cannot wait to hear where she's going to eat in the world!

I have this fascination with Tony's too. I love the idea of an Italian themed restaurant based on Lady and the Tramp and I want to sing Bella Notte everytime I pass it but the reviews have scared me off. Maybe next time I'll bite the bullet just so I can have the tiramisu with the cute cocoa powder Lady on the plate.

Beginning on March 23rd, I will hopefully be posting my "live from Disney World" food pictures and will leave it up to all of you to guess, "Where in the World is jabead?" The first person to correctly guess my location will be awarded a WITWIJ game point. So with a little Disney WiFi luck, you will have the opportunity to test your Disney food knowledge and actively participate in a "Live Thread" game next week without having to fight the Spring Break/Easter Week massive crowds.
I'm looking forward to it and to your reviews and insights! Yay! This calls for a dancing banana or three for sure!
